This is what I found on the floor.
Out to the garage I go, mentally trying to figure out a solution, a really fast solution! The first idea wasted about two hours before I finally decided it was never going to happen. So I grabbed an unpainted shelf and a can of paint, the brushes, and some screws.
First thing was to patch those huge holes.
We have really terrible dry wall and it's very difficult to hang anything on the walls and have it stay. So I decided to hang the shelf first and with my Dad's help we got it secure. Then I was afraid to take it down to paint it so I painted it on the wall. Not the best idea I've ever had, but the shelf is still secure.
Next began the search through boxes I hadn't had a chance to unpack yet, looking for four hooks that at least almost matched, and items to put up. You can't just have a plain white shelf you know.
At last, after going through a huge bag of hooks and about five boxes, it's coming together. I think I like it so much better than that horrible towel rod.
Here's the finished arrangement. I admit I bought the green candle sticks a couple of days after Thanksgiving.
We had a wonderful family Thanksgiving and now I have a shelf in the guest bath I can decorate for Christmas too. How terrific is that!
(Okay, as friends and family know, it still didn't go smooth and flawless. My wonderful Norwegian baker poisoned my sister and she ended up in ER. But you'll have to ask her for the details, her name is Vintage Embellishment.)
Have a great week! Pepper
